The agriturismo

Located  between Cascia and Norcia, in an astonishing rural landscape near the National Park of Monti Sibillini,  arises La Romita di Valle Fuino;  a renovated old-stone country house; built around the remains of a still consecrated and expertly restored  little chapel dated 1077 AD.

The  facility offers accommodations into four apartments, each of the ones with double bedrooms, a hall and a small kitchen. In addition, the facility can boast  12 double bedrooms,  allowing  a total of 28 people to sojourn at the location altogether . The facility is accessible by wheelchair and two rooms are specifically  designed for disabled guests. 
All the rooms have in-suite toilets. The facility  also has a restaurant with two bathrooms; one of which specifically designed for disabled guests.
Another distinctive feature of the facility is the food it  offers. In addition to traditional Umbrian recipes, guests also have the opportunity of enjoying  dishes typical of other regions of Italy  and even foreign dishes;  all exclusively prepared using natural products.
 Most of the products used in the kitchen, in fact, are self produced. 
Some examples are the  spelt,  the barley, the well known Castelluccio's  lentils, the truffles,  the saffron, the  mushrooms, the woodland's fruits and vegetables, the cheese originating solely from the facility’s own herd of sheep, and finally the poultry and rabbits. 
All  the livestock  products used in the facility's kitchen are bred strictly in a traditional  manner;  on local  pastures.
 

The accommodation

The farm’s headquarters is located in an old rural farmhouse that incorporates an ancient church. Expertly restored, it offers accommodation in four apartments, each with two double bedrooms, hall and kitchenette, and in six double rooms, sleeping a total of 28. The agriturismo is wheelchair accessible, and two of the rooms are designed for disabled guests. All the rooms have ensuite facilities. The agriturismo also has a restaurant with two bathrooms, one for disabled guests.

Another distinctive feature in the farm is the food on offer: in addition to traditional Umbrian recipes, guests can also enjoy other dishes typical of other regions and even foreign dishes, prepared exclusively using natural products. Most of the farm produce, in fact, ends up in the farmhouse kitchen: spelt, barley, lentils from the Castelluccio area, truffles, saffron and mushrooms, vegetables and fruits of the forest, milk-fed baby lamb and cheese originating solely from the farm’s own herd of sheep, as well as poultry and rabbits. All the agricultural produce and livestock on the farm are grown and bred in a strictly organic manner on natural pastures.

Inside the agriturismo, guests can also find a reception area with comfortable sofas for relaxing on, an internet point and a reading room. During the weekly stays, short courses are organised on saffron processing, artisan cheese making, hemp rope knots and splicing.

Activities and surrounding

Another distinctive feature of the facility is its strategic location which, while offering guests the peace and tranquillity of an unspoilt valley with pastures and woods as far as the eye can see, also offers the opportunity for interesting daytrips to places of high cultural and religious value. The farm is in fact connected by a provincial road, which means that from La Romita di Valle Fuino, guests are just minutes away from places such as Cascia or Norcia, as well as the Castelluccio Plains and Monte Vettore. It is also about an hour's drive to Spoleto, Foligno, Assisi andPerugia,Ascoli Piceno and Rieti.

Paths and field cart-roads leave from the farmhouse and, passing through woods and pastures, allow guests to take walks through nature that is still unspoilt, where it is common to come across squirrels, hares, foxes and eagles, which inhabit the surrounding woods.

On request, the agriturismo also organises educational sessions on botanical species typical of the area and walks, with a guide on request, along paths which, starting from the farm, lead to the surrounding valleys and are also ideal mountain biking trails. On request, tours can be organised of the Monti Sibillini National Park, where La Romita di Valle Fuino has nearly four hundred hectares of pasture (Monte Vettore and Monte Vettoretto) and a few hectares of arable land on the Plains of Castelluccio di Norcia.

    You want to relax? Do you want to enjoy nature? Do you want to be pampered? Well ... then you have found the right place! My wife and I we needed to relax and here (though unfortunately only x one night) we found it! Then the welcome Mirko was outstanding (the boy kitchen also good) although we went there thanks to a Smartbox. We were all treated like second class customers .... indeed! Then the place is awesome because rustic, very clean and placed big x who want to hike or want to escape from it all! Thank you so much to Mirko for its hospitality, continues. See you soon!
